Sorry Mister, I'm a Sister IV

I sure enjoyed Elder Holland's talk "The Cost--and Blessings--of Discipleship" from the April 2014 General Conference. I particularly loved this story...

“My companion and I saw a man sitting on a bench in the town square eating his lunch. As we drew near, he looked up and saw our missionary name tags. With a terrible look in his eye, he jumped up and raised his hand to hit me. I ducked just in time, only to have him spit his food all over me and start swearing the most horrible things at us. We walked away saying nothing. I tried to wipe the food off of my face, only to feel a clump of mashed potato hit me in the back of the head. Sometimes it is hard being a missionary because right then I wanted to go back, grab that little man, and say, ‘EXCUSE ME!’ But I didn’t.”

I am so grateful for our Missionaries that are out there day after day defending their beliefs with "courtesy and compassion" and spreading the good word!
